Be Accurate In Recipe Amounts

A few dairy companies are now manufacturing butter wrapped in 2 ounce sticks (4 Tbsp. or 1/4 cup) instead of 4 ounce sticks (8 Tbsp. or 1/2 cup) so it would be a good idea to make sure any recipe you give out clearly states either the ounces, tablespoon or cup amounts instead of simply saying "a stick of butter".


Giving a correct conversion can mean the difference between a ruined recipe and food wasted because of too much or not enough butter.

I would enlarge this to be exact in sizes when giving recipe amounts as well. So many times I read a recipe here and it says use a small can of vegetables, or 1/2 a bag of noodles. A 16 oz. can is small when you are used to cooking large meals and not every bag of noodles is the same size. Please specify how many ounces, cups, etc. so we can try the recipe.
